It was a crazy Friday at the continuation high school. Five teachers were out.
(This year has been crazy busy for us subs. There have been several trainings where whole departments are out. There's some new math program. There's Common Core trainings. And they just purchased a whole new system of projectors and peripherals such as tablets that the teachers all need to be trained on. Which means that not only does every sub in the pool seem to work daily, many days there are so many teachers out that some teachers don't get their very own subs.)
My prep period was after snack. I was hovering around my door, outside. Which, in retrospect, was kind of stupid...
The tardy bell rang. There were a whole slew of students standing around outside. The principal was there corralling them. Then he noticed me.
Ah well. I didn't actually expect a prep period, anyway.
